Ponte de Lima, Viana do Castelo District, Northern Portugal
Quinta de Agriboa is a former farmhouse, built in the late 18th century, which has been beautifully and sensitively restored. The Quinta is surrounded by hectares of vineyards in a beautiful valley that catches the sun from dawn until sunset.

All of the original building has been preserved with restorative stonework that perfectly matches the old walls. The year-long restoration project was filmed for a series of BBC documentaries, broadcast in spring 2009, where the programme makers commented on the 'breathtaking skill of local craftsmen'.

Interaction with guests
We have a local agent who welcomes all guests to the villa and gives them a tour of the facilities. Sergio also provides excellent travel directions for guests who are arriving at the airport. He gives all guests his mobile number and email and they can contact him at any point during the holiday. Sergio and his wife Diana, who runs a travel agency, can also help organise trips and activities or book tables in local restaurants. They can also book a local cook who will come to the villa to prepare and serve a traditional Portuguese meal. this is a highlight for many families.
